The following request is from UEA President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh.
"This week’s request is that you engage as many of your local members as possible in a letter writing campaign to their local papers regarding how the unfunded student growth for the past two years has impacted their individual classrooms. Some issues related to this might include increase in class size or supplies in short supply. The general public and our legislative leaders need to hear from our teachers. I would encourage you to also engage in conversations with parents, out of school time, on this issue."
